I also had a problem with my dog backing out of his collar. I felt if I went tighter with his collar, it would choke him. I left his collar as is and now when I walk him, I use his leash and a choker chain. when he tries to back out, his collar tightens and he realizes he cannot do so. He has stopped backing out of his leash but now we are working on not pulling when we walk. I am going to try the tip above which says to stop walking until his leash loosens to see how that works. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Having your dog walk with a lose leach is well worth the work.

I will be trying these suggestions. We just welcomed a wonderful Beagi into our family yesterday and he is a puller. His nose hits the ground and he is ready to move as fast as he can.

With my Great Dane mix puppy Loki, we went and got a gentle leader to have him wear and he does exceptional with it. And we have even been able to walk him without it a few times now and he is not pulling. I think this article was a lot of help.

Showed me that I was doing it right when I would stop walking when he started pulling. But with the gentle lead he will still pull when he gets excited and that is when I will stop walking. His actions followed what was in the article.

Yes, this is the way a dog understands what YOU want. Amazing though, many people find this to be too tedious. I train dogs and I use this technique myself. Training is repetitious, and you must be consistent. What most people don't realize is, most dogs learn this rather quickly IF you are consistent and never let them win the pulling game.

I think one issue, like it said, kinda, is that a dog is not exercised enough. So then when a dog does get out they pull. Then the owner doesn't want to walk the dog more, thus causing a chain
Dog didn't get exercised a lot?dog finally gets a walk but tugs like crazy (out of lack of exercise)?owner can't stand getting tugged hence, walks dog less?turns a nice dog to walk with into a
Moral of story, exercise your dog before thinking your dog is just wanting to tug.

Our dog use to pull a lot. I tried everything to get him to walk properly. Unfortunately we were not communicating very well. But as soon I found a method that communicated to him what I wanted, I no longer had any problems.

I find stopping and saying "Uh oh" worked really well. I have also used turning around and walking in the opposite direction.

If you have a puller, I recommend trying a Rokstraps leash! I was recently given one and it is awesome and doesn't hurt the dog at
all! 5_1/
